Re: An new take on amanita growth. -

Mycological academia is your limiting factor, Stephen. Donald E. Teeter has given a very special and sacred gift to the world for free. His book "Amanita Muscaria; Herb of Immortality" details his discovery of the Eternal Fleece and its significance role throughout history. Mr. Teeter also gives det...

Re: An new take on amanita growth. -

Hi Stephen, Like I mentioned in previous posts, we don't know whether the Fleece is AM mycelium or a mucor or some other symbiotic organism. *You yourself, an experienced mycologist, believe the Fleece to be a "mucor". *So as far as the color of the spores, haven't you already answered your own ques...

Re: An new take on amanita growth. -

Whether the Fleece is Amanita mycelium or a mucor or a yeast or a hybrid, I do not know. I do believe that the Eternal Fleece (which, as far as we know, only spawns from Amanita muscaria) is the Soma, the Philosopher's Stone, and the "Body of Christ". Even if evidence suggests that the Eternal Fleec...

Re: An new take on amanita growth. -

I also wanted to add a little tidbit of information I came across in my research. Since many of you quickly dismissed the Fleece as "just a mucor", I had to do some research on "mucors". What I found out was pretty interesting, particularly the following: Tempeh (one of the oldest foods Asia) is mad...

Been a while since there's been any activity on this thread :) Anyway, Don and I (mostly Don, of course) have been doing a lot of research over the last several months and have found some very interesting findings. In fact, Don is currently working on a new article/essay/book that once finished, wil...

Anyone interested should check out the updates to the Photo Gallery on the Ambrosia Society's page. We documented, with photos, the progress of making the living bread over 5 days. A couple of the batches dried up too quickly and started turning dark, but this is due to burning some of the barley, b...

Re: An new take on amanita growth. -

I found a very old, and very interesting article from 1809 Divine Mushroom of Immortality (Fly Agaric Kamachadal) by Georg Heinrich von Langsdorf Frankfurt 1809 "...The Kamchacals gather them usually during the hottest months of July and August; they maintain that those that dry themselfs in the ear...

Re: An new take on amanita growth. -

Interesting. But that's a parasite instead of an endophyte. That's true. It is currently classified as a parasite. But it is a parasite that: " does not kill its host, nor does it infect all members of a population. It's important for a parasite to keep its host alive so that it can continue to fea...

Re: An new take on amanita growth. -

In response to the comment that a mycologist made in this forum about not finding any evidence of heat converting ibotenic acid into muscimol, I found this: "Ibotenic acid (pantherin, agarin), i.e. a-amino-3- hydroxy-5-isoxazoloacetic acid 1, is colourless (crystals, C5H6N2O4, mol wt 158.11, mp 150–...
